Did you read the comments on YouTube? They wxplian things fairly thoroughly, I think.
དམ་པའི་དོན་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ཆེ་བ་དང་།
རྟོག་གེའི་ཡུལ་མིན་བླ་མའི་བྱིན་རླབས་དང་།
སྐལ་ལྡན་ལས་འཕྲོ་ཅན་གྱིས་རྟོགས་པ་སྟེ།
དེ་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ལ་ནི་ལོ་རྟོག་སེལ།།


"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,
It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."

yeah, i found this dance very precious and clear. each action of smash, bond, etc. is an amazing example of what lamas do for the sake of the buddhadharma. it's fantastic.

this is my opinion of course, i don't know really how is it throug monastic view. however, i'm happy to share it.

In this ritual is the karmapa serving as medium for mahakala?
Maybe a related question:
Is self generation as deity the same as being possessed or channeling the deity? Where is the distinction?
